Back by popular demand, we have Rye football game previews by the OG:
By The Old Garnet
Saturday, October 10 Rye @ Harrison 11:00 AM
Finally those of us in Rye who have been around a long time know how it felt in Harrison when the HARRISON HUSKIES dominated the series in the ‘70s and ‘90s.
For 2015 the Garnets are the pre-season Class A favorite, Piner-ranked # 1, while the Maroon and White strangely start the campaign mired deep in the rankings at # 15. “THE GAME” is the highlight Section One Rivalry and appears in the sixth and final regular season slot as by tradition it should.
This rivalry, extending back some three generations over eight decades, reaches its 85th renewal as Westchester’s Premier Football Rivalry Game. Hey boys, it’s time to strap on the old leather helmet, cinch up the chinstrap and suck it up – you are representing generations of your communities in this one.
“THE GAME” is for all the marbles, all the bragging rights. It’s the BIG ONE as Rye seeks an unprecedented, twelfe victory in the last thirteen tilts, inching the Garnets ever-closer to parity in the long-standing series, currently logged at 39-42-3 (.481%).
Kick-off is slated for 11:00AM at McGuillicuddy Field at HHS. If you want prime seats arrive early, long before the clock starts on Westchester’s finest high school football game. HANG THE HUSKIES ! HANG THE HUSKIES !
